Shopping @ Footlocker
During my travels, I decided to look in the local Footlocker store to see what, looked good, what was on sale and if I’d be motivated to buy anything. This was a trip to the store where I didn’t need any new shoes. I had just recently bought a new pair of ASICS tennis shoes, because I actually needed those. But this was just a perusing shopping trip, feeling like I’d buy something if it caught my eye.
It turns out there were several pair that caught my eye. The first was the Reebok workout plus ripple. What caught my eye was the outsole, it has a mix of a classic look on the upper and the gum rubber sole that was rippled made it look like it could pull double duty for regular wear and light hiking if so desired.
New Balance's 327 sneaker
The second pair was the new balance 327 debuted in April of 2020 (oof) via designer Charaf Tajer’s brand Casablanca.
Just take a look at these shoes, there isn’t an eye they wouldn’t catch.
They have that retro yet modern look along with the material that they are made from make them perfect for casual wear and the compliment to just lookin good.
Puma RS-X Mid
I finally chose the Puma RS-X Mid. These med height shoes felt really comfortable, and can be used for athletic activity, or a nice compliment to lookin good at a party. They even came with a different color pair of laces to change up the look. The snap closure at the top were also a nice touch to keep the laces tight. Most feel they are comfortable and versatile for many different uses. I’m definitely going to enjoy wearing these, and may even look into getting the black pair as well.
